    I bet when this pony sheds out, it will be chestnut with flaxen mane/tail. This looks a lot like my first pony that I got for Christmas on my 8th b-day. Decided to test whether there really was a Santa Claus or not and put a note on the Christmas tree on Christmas Eve. Got up the next morning and there was a pony outside with a big red bow!

    I had a shetland that was very close to that color and she was consitered a silver dapple or a bay dapple that is on a bay based coat(main and tail are often light) you can see pics of both at http://www.equinecolor.com/silver.html

    I don't think she'll lighten up in the summer.. My trainer has an identical colored shetland gelding (hes not registered though) and he gets a little lighter, but his coat doesn't seem to be red-based at all (like a chestnut).. I think silver dapple shetlands are common, at least more so than in other breeds.

    I think this website also explains it well...

    I just say Chocolate Palomino or Chocolate Flaxen. I have never heard of a Silver Dapple before. I have heard them being called a Dappled Palomino as well. Hmmmm....

    Oh my goodness! That is such a cute little pony! :)

    I think it's a dark dappled palomino.

    We have a shetland that color too. We call him a chocolate palomino. He lightens in summer. Great dapples. Dapples are supposed to be a sign of good health.
